I thought I'd be nice and share the rough draft of the seating chart with my mom. She is very hands-off when it comes to this wedding. I thought it would be nice to include her in something. FAIL. She bitched about my brother sitting at one of the wedding party tables when he should be at their table. But my parents are sitting with 4 couples who are travelling very far to be here, and who we've known forever. My dad actually texted me and TOLD me to move them. They are paying for maybe 10% of this wedding.
I wish I had never sent it to them. They haven't been involved in ANY of the planning, but all of a sudden they have an opinion. If I switch them around then this family friend couple won't really have a good place to sit. They don't know anyone else, and will end up getting pushed to tables farther away. This is so frustrating. I'm tempted to keep it as it is and just say WOOPS on my wedding day.
And with 115+ people I'm definitely sticking with the seating plan.
